Eric's Day Flashback - When We Were Young.

This flashback comes from August 2008 and is called:

When We Were Young.

These are old photos that mum took with her non digital camera. We have always liked climbing ladders. This one didn't seem to go anywhere though.

When we got up there we just had to come back down again.

We like step ladders too. They are good for lying on when your dad wants to stand on them to cut the hedge.

And good for practising your acrobatics too.

And why bother with the steps when there is a straight side you can climb up?

When we had finished climbing, we would always have a wrassle.

Or sometimes we would climb into the hedge and go up through the middle to sit on the top. This is a very good place for snoopervising as we are about nine feet up.

We are nearly two years old in these photos except the last one in which we were about 10 - 12 months old.

  19. Ha! I never thought about it, but ladders are basically un-upholstered cat-trees, eh, Flynn? You and your brother sure had a good time.

  24. I’m sorry you miss your brofur so much. The only cat here who climbed ladders was Faith. She used to get way on the top of Gramma’s closet. As much as I wish I could get on the crawl space, I don’t go up the ladder.

  25. Oh my you two were such rambunctious boys! That's what we cats do best though right - climb up all kinds of things!
    Thanks for your Christmas card and stopping by with your thoughts for Beau Beau. We are missing our boy somefin terrible.
